FW07 Trend: Ethnic-Looking Scarves

A large comfortable scarf has always been a staple to one's winter outfits. In the past few years, the trend seemed to be of plain, mono-coloured scarves. But ever since Balanciaga's FW07 show, ethnic-looking scarves have become more and more popular. Walk in to any high street store, Zara in particular, and you would notice that they have been selling a lot of Balenciaga-inspired scarves. Think tie-dyed, or coin/ round metal pieces-embellished scarves. I actaully bought a tie-dyed silk scarf from Zara when I was in a runway-fashion haze, but I returned it later becuase I decided it just wasn't practical. Speaking of Balenciaga, if you haven't seen one of the Balenciaga scarves in real life, go see it and feel it! Your brain might just irrationally equate the quality to the huge price tag.
Anyways, I usually buy myself one to two scarves per FW season. This season, one of my scarves is this green printed scarf. (Excuse the crappy styling and photography.) It's half silk and half wool, so it's not the thickest, warmest scarf around, but it's good for those not-too-chilly days. I especially like the purple and green blocks of colour at the ends of the scarf.
Did you buy an ethnic-looking scarf in the spirit of the FW07 season?

I'm going crazy looking for one!
I stopped into Marshalls the other day in hopes of finding a cute scarf, maybe leapord, maybe purple, whatever. They had the most hideous selection I have ever seen!

I'll check out Zara though.

One of the scarfs I had to get this season are from Sir Alistair Rai. Very ethnic and cultural-- indian inspired. Many celebrities are wearing them, but apart from that, they are huge and comfy.

Nearly everyone (females/males) here on campus in Toronto have been wearing pashmina-like scarves with the ethnic prints (but more subtlely printed) since September! It's almost overdone, really. They're probably as ubiquitous as skinny jeans!

Needless to say, I have a couple, from H&M and another from a small boutiquey store downtown.

Love the blog!

Thank you for the wonderful effort

إني تذكـرت والذكرى مؤرقـة *مجـداً تلـيدا بأيـدينا أضعـناه

أنَّى اتجهتَ للإسـلام في بـلـدٍ * تجْده كالطيرِ مقصـوصًا جناحـاه

كـم صرفتنا يـدٌ كنـا نـصرفها * وبات يـملكنا شعب مـلكناه

بالله سل خلف بحر الروم عن عرب * بالأمس كانوا هنا واليوم قد تاهوا

وانزل دمشق وسائل صخر مسجدها * عمن بناه لعل الـصخر ينعـاه

هذى معـالم خرس كـل واحـدة * منهن قامت خطيبـا فاغرا فـاه

الله يعلم ما قلبت سـيرتهم يومـا * وأخطـأ دمـع الـعين مـجراه

يا من يرى عمـراتكسوه بردته * الزيت أدمٌ لـه والكـوخ مـأواه

يهتز كسـرى على كرسيه فرقـا * من خوفه ، وملوك الروم تخشـاه

يا رب فابعث لنا من مثلهم نفـرا * يشـيدون لـنا مـجدا أضعنـاه

When it comes to custom-paper-writing.org, Custom Writings has a range of writers whose experience is in many years. It means that each writer has enough ability to deal with every single thing needed to make essay. Before you step forward to make a deal for essay writing, it seems important to chat with customer service talking about price and duration of making essay. Then, you can directly talk to a writer conveying anything that must exist in an essay. Meaning, you tell writer your demand in order to get custom essay.
